Broke but Still treading water

After this past year, I can not believe that I survived another one.  While everyone knows that life must go on, it is often very difficult when the one you lived for is gone.  Although no one is exempt from this pain, the loss of 2 parents is worse than just one.  Fighting with siblings often happens between siblings that are too close in age or too far apart in age but it is normal.  However, trying to run one over with a motorcycle is not.  Living with people that do not want you is about the same but not close. My children want to be a part of my restaurant when I finally get the backing financially.  The idea to have an old time burger joint would take off here because on this side of the town we live in has no restaurants.  The east side of the highway is getting more populated and we could use somewhere to eat close by.

MONEY

Money, what is it?  To those who have it, they say nothing;  but to those who do not have any, they say it's the world.  Everything could be better if we just had money to pay for the things that we need to fix.  Living in Florida my whole life, I didn't grow up with snow outside and a warm fireplace inside.  I found a house in my price range that I just could not pass up.  This house was built in 1927 and for its age is in very good condition.  I just want money to fix my house from the hurricanes last year and again this year.  The leaks in the kids rooms need to be fixed again so they will stop leaking and they can sleep in their beds again.  By then, we will need new beds for them too.  I also want to finish my degree at college since I only have 4 classes left to obtain my AS.  However with 3 children and a house needing to be fixed, money is hard to save on 1 income.

every challenge builds me up

When my father was alive, he said every experience builds a person up for the final.  If that is the case, then I should pass with flying colors.  I have been through enough for my young age and am trying to make a better life for my children.  I didn't have a bad childhood but I missed out on a few things.  Until 6 years ago, I never thought I could stand on my own and then, I was strong enough to stand for my children.

Female owned business

With all the opportunities in this country, there are still several people looked over when getting loans or financial help.  I have often wondered what it would be like to finally get that loan for a business.  I want to open up a burger joint that was here 20 years ago.  Although, it won't be the same one,  we will be able to get the building and sell some of the same products.  Dedication and hard work will have to rise above everything else.

Back to Basics

Growing up in a small town, several things stand out compared to the big city scene.  Most of the businesses have been here for a long time so when one of them closes, the impact is harder.  One of my favorite places to get a burger closed when I was 16 and noone has purchased the building or anything.  The location of the building is on the east side of town.  Right now there are no restaurants on this side.  With the high school only 4 blocks away, the idea of having a little restaurant open over there sounds better each time.  The finacial part is what I need help with.  Employees are already lined up to work just need the backing to start up.
